where are we?
Oct 23, 2013

Each of the great civilizations in the world passed through a series of stages from their birth to their decline to their death. Historians have listed these in ten stages.

The first stage moves from bondage to spiritual faith.

The second stage from spiritual faith to great courage.

The third stage moves from great courage to liberty.

The fourth stage moves from liberty to abundance.

The fifth stage moves from abundance to selfishness.

the sixth stage mover from selfishness to complacency.

The seventh stage moves from complacency to apathy.

The eighth stage moves from apathy to moral decay

the ninth stage moves from moral decay to dependence.

and the tenth stage moves from dependence to bondage.

So where would you say America or your country is in this cycle?
